Sometimes it seems like you need to give in and allow yourself to do something. I’m talking in terms of risk/uncertainty. To allow yourself to be goofy or funny or bold. We hold back because of judgement. Both our own internal judgement and the perceived judgement that can come from others. The issue with this, that I’ve been struggling with at least, is that it does not allow for joy. It does not allow for you to live the life you want to live. To be who you want to be. By not allowing yourself to be the person you desire to be, you hold yourself back and are not as full as you can be. This seems scary but it may be the best option. To take the risk and allow yourself to be yourself.
